Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turns out the two aren't that different.
Former con artist turned lawyer Eddie Flynn gave up the law a year ago after a disastrous case, and he vowed never to step foot in a courtroom again. But now he doesn't have a choice. The head of the Russian mob in New York City, on trial for murder, has kidnapped Eddie's 10-year-old daughter: Eddie has to take this case whether he likes it or not.
Using his razor-sharp wit and every con, bluff, grift, and trick in the book, Eddie has only 48 hours to defend an impossible murder trial. And if he loses this case, he loses everything.

"This audiobook goes from zero to ninety out of the box and doesn't flag until The End, so fasten your seat belt.... [Narrator] Adam Sims gives a bravura performance so at one with the text that you hardly notice he's there beside you on the edge of your seat." (AudioFile)

Thrilling and upbeat.... sometimes just too much
Hard to read because of poor grammar!
If the reader enjoys intelligent writing that challenges the mind, I would not recommend this book. The story was good enough, but the author's constant use of poor grammar and other errors (that were not caught by the editor) was a big problem. I cringed every time I heard things like "the group are..." (does Cavanagh not understand what collective nouns are?) and "Federal Bureau of Investigations" (it's not plural). It made the book very hard to listen to and I'll never read/listen to anything from this author again.
